Apple has started offering a 50% discount for students when they subscribe to its Apple Music streaming service. That means that if you’re studying you can listen to millions of tracks and playlists for £4.99 a month.
The discount will be available to students for a total of four years, making it an enticing proposition compared with Spotify and Tidal.
Despite now having 13 million subscribers, Apple Music has been criticised for its unwieldy design.
It's also been on the receiving end of complaints from users who say that the streaming service has caused local music files to be deleted from their iTunes libraries.
The student-friendly price cut, however, should help the company grow Apple Music at a faster rate and take the fight to its rivals.
The news comes just days after a report claimed that Apple was priming a major overhaul of its streaming service.
The company is said to be plotting a new black and white design, as well as making lyrics available and improving browsing.
The updated Apple Music is expected to make its debut at Apple’s WWDC event, which starts on June 13th in San Francisco.
